perfect square by Michael Hall
Five paw prints! One day there was a square and it was perfect. It had four perfect sides and four perfect corners. It was happy. Then it was cut, torn, shredded, and shattered...and that was just the beginning of the week. But every time the square was no longer perfect, it became a new picture that was even better than the square. Unfortunately, in the end, the square is no longer happy and there is only one way to be happy again. What a wonderful book! I can't remember the last time I read such a clever and original picture book. If you loved Not a Box but you are ready for the next great book then this is the book for you. But don't take my word for it, visit the book at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JD9PnQFc8Kk.
